Textbook Problem

1 - 6 Choosing a Window Use a graphing calculator or computer to decide which viewing rectangle ( a ) ( d ) produces the most appropriate graph of the equation.

y = 100 x 2

(a) [ 4 , 4 ] by [ 4 , 4 ] .

(b) [ 10 , 10 ] by [ 10 , 10 ] .

(c) [ 15 , 15 ] by [ 30 , 110 ] .

(d) [ 4 , 4 ] by [ 30 , 110 ] .

To determine

The most appropriate graph of the equation y=100x2 in between the given viewing rectangle (a)(d).

Explanation

Given:

The given equation is,

y=100x2

The rectangular view given are,

(a) [4,4] by [4,4].

(b) [10,10] by [10,10].

(c) [15,15] by [30,110].

(d) [4,4] by [30,110].

Approach:

The graph of the equation using graphing calculator in the given rectangular view is construct on the basis of the following steps:

Step 1: Press the key Y= on the graphing calculator and write the given equation, Y= screen in the graphing calculator is as shown below,

Figure (1)

Step 2: Press the key WINDOW on the graphing calculator and write the given rectangular view, WINDOW screen in the graphing calculator is as shown below,

Figure (2)

Step 3: Press the key GRAPH on the graphing calculator and view the graph obtained, GRAPH screen in the graphing calculator is as shown below,

Figure (3)

Calculation:

Case (a): [4,4] by [4,4].

Write the given equation in the graphing calculator,

y=100x2

Start with the viewing rectangle [4,4] by [4,4].

Set,

Xmin=4Xmax=4Ymin=4Ymax=4

The result graph is as shown below,

Figure (4)

The resulting graph is blank. The graph is entirely outside the window screen. So this rectangular view is also not appropriate.

Case (b): [10,10] by [10,10].

Write the given equation in the graphing calculator,

y=100x2

Start with the viewing rectangle [10,10] by [10,10]
